    Carbon fibre

    As some of the older members may be aware I had a go at carbon fibre a good while ago and it wasn't very successfull, being as I've still got some cloth left I'm considering having another bash at it, anyone recommend anything they'd like either coating or making in carbon fibre?. I'm not taking orders as I still need to nail down the technique but if I know what everyone wants then I can have a go at that for the time being, I wont be doing anything daft like full body panels as the price would be just stupid (unless someones got money burning a hole in their pocket) but small trim pieces may be doable.

    I'm also still airbrushing as well if anyone fancies tarting their engine bay up..

    Some cool work there Tomcat! I'm sure somewhere down the line I could find some use for your airbrush skills, though at this point I'm after one of your V70R (1st gen) front bumper splitters. Do you have any already made or do you make to order?

    Thanks Mark, I've got the stuff for airbrushing so whenever you're ready gimme a shout, as for the splitters...I make them to order, that way I don't end up stuck with any when someone orders one and then never pays for it. I'm about to order some more materials tomorrow once they arrive I can make one whenever.

    I'd like some custom artwork for my engine/cam cover. I know I keep saying about it. Would also like a custom carbon airtake shield. I need to remodel my Ipd sheild as the maf has moved relative to the old one. Would like to use the existing mount points

    I'd really like a carbon splitter suitable for the more curved shape of the C70?

    I have spare ME7 engine covers, C70 bonnet & C70 boot lid too - all which could be used for modelling. Depends on who wants what.

    I would need a pre me7 cover, i think the bonnet and engine covers would b a good idea as they fit so many cars, obviously the boot is a different story but i think it could be real smart (and what i would need to shift some more weight)

    not sure the boot is worth it given that it is already 1/2 plastic.
